Callie & Son Reviews:

I picked this one up at the local dollar store. Recently, dollar shops have been purchasing out these old B-rated clunkers, packaging them in cardboard boxes, painting it up all pretty, and selling them for a buck. If you're a dollar shop fanatic like I am, you know what I'm talking about.Anyhow, I picked this one up expecting other B-rated clunker (don't receive be wrong ... I LOVE B-rated clunkers). But what I got was a pleasant surprise. First of all, the pack was mislabeled. It told 90 minutes. Instead, it's about 140 minutes. It looks like it was a made-for-TV film or mini-series.Never have I seen a film where at the end, I felt like I had watched 10 various films with 10 various stories. But that is what this is.Very lengthy, complex, weirdly unbelievable movie. This is some type of nice film with some very deep points to it, yet I'm not sure what they are, another than the dangers of being an obsessive mother.Watch it if you search it somewhere (like at the dollar store). I have a short attention span when it comes to movies, but this one kept my attention for 140 minutes.It's worth more than a dollar. It's now worth at least 2 dollars. LOL


Lindsay Wagner is Callie Martha King from Chillacott, Texas who moves to Dallas after giving up her son for black store adoption. Whilst working as a waitress she meets the Dallas Post Despatch newspaper editor Randall Bordeaux (Dabney Coleman) whom she marries. Randall locates Callie's adopted son Randy (Jameson Parker), and she succeeds Randall as editor, however Callie's ambition for Randy is crashed by his wife Sue Lynn (Michelle Pfeiffer), with Randy on trial for murder.The treatment is noteworthy as a role for which Wagner abandons her customary long blonde hair. Her Callie is a brunette, who changes from a wavy long style to a short mannish slash and ends with a straight pageboy bob with grey touches and shadows under her eyes to indicate aging. Callie is seen as a court reporter wearing spinster spectacles, in a tacky orange ball gown, and black widow weeds and sunglasses. Wagner's makes amusing test of her southern accent, and is touching with Randy as a child, but the several times where she has long hair she does her flicking mannerism. She is nice with indignation eg `Who bore him?!' and `Who is this child?!', when crying with `Why did God wait so long to punish me?', and spits out a whipped `Why?' in a hospital scene. In a trial she chews on her lips, and there is an off-camera large scream. At one mission Wagner runs a champagne glass over her lips as she looks at Randy, and in her last stage with Parker, she gives a look of terror to `Do you hate me?'.It's interesting to compare the acting styles of Wagner with the practically unrecognisable chubby-cheeked Pfeiffer, particularly in one confrontation scene. Wagner is all controlled technique whilst the novice Pfeiffer has a preferable messy emotionalism.The teleplay by Thomas Thompson is mediocre, using a narration by Kimble Smythe (Andrew Pine) who is barely around and giving Callie a life long mate in Jeannie (Joy Garrett). Thompson tries for a gothic tone in the tale, closing with a cyclic act, with the shootings paralled with that of JFK. However the Mildred Pierce association, where a film marquee shows it playing, doesn't quite work. The dialogue is soap opera cornball, with `She crossed the line between possession and obsession', `Please don't waste your love on a girl who can't agree it', and `It takes a entire lot more courage to die than go on living on the instalment plan'.Director Waris Hussein only enlivens trial scenes, which border on camp, cutting to Callie's reactions, and he uses the spinning newspaper edit. To his credit, however, he freezes on tv footage of JFK before we see him in the vehicle at the airport, and we aren't shown the shooting of someone who gets it in the face.


This film wasn't that bad, but don't expect too much of it. It is sold for a dollar at the local walmart as part of a two film deal. Though the picture is grainy, it isn't too bad. The storyline line is convoluted and often confusion, but there is definitely plenty of drama and over the top acting. At times the mother/son relationship seems to be bordering on incest, but never crosses the line. It is nice for a lazy afternoon, and will definitely give soap opera or telenovela lovers a thrill. Michelle is definitely not Callie, and the packaging of my film did not confuse that, it should be that they have modernized it for the newer versions. It was fun seeing a young Michelle in one of her first movies. She is more curvy, but definitely still very skinny as can be seen in one stage where she is in her bra and panties.
